One of the most amazing aspects of television is the role of time. Seconds, minutes, and hours tend to fly by during the day and when it’s a show day, forget it—there is never enough time to get everything done. But somehow we do it. One way to get it done is for the production team to be organized on show day. Every person has a role, and if he or she prepares properly, then everything should go smoothly when it comes to airtime.
